CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla – The GOES-O launch team will try again Saturday, June 27, to launch the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite-O.

Friday’s scheduled launch of a Delta IV rocket carrying the GOES-O weather satellite was scrubbed at 6:58 p.m. EDT because of thunderstorms within 10 miles of Space Launch Complex-37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla.

Forecasters are calling for a 40 percent chance of favorable weather Saturday. The one-hour launch window runs from 6:14 p.m. to 7:14 p.m.

NASA Television’s launch commentary will begin at 4:30 p.m. and conclude about 30 minutes after liftoff. For NASA TV downlink information, schedules and links to streaming video, visit:
